    I have what I thought were 4 brown leghorns..turns out, they are probably 4 welsummers. With the sussex, I noticed little dots at the top joint of where the wing meats with the back. The others do not have this..it is harder to tell a brown leghorn from a welsummer..do you have pics? These are my leghorn / welsummers
